A Forsyth County deputy did something heartwarming for a woman in need.

Recently, a woman posted a letter online in hopes of finding the kind man. She was recently at the Chevron gas station on Highway 20 by Doc Bramblett Road.

According to the woman's post, she is expecting a baby with her fiancé and they are trying to save money. Her fiancé is currently searching for a better job.

"I was supposed to pay my mom back $100, but she told me to save it for when I'm on maternity leave for 6 weeks," she said.

The woman went on to say she was forced to dip into the money and needed to put $10 of gas to get home and to work.

She was waiting in line to pay for gas and didn't realize the deputy was in front of her. While she was in line her fiancé called.

"Well I was scraping for money in my car so I could put some more gas into it," the woman told her fiancé on the phone. "I need gas to get home tonight."

The woman said she didn't even realize what was taking place during her conversation. The deputy paid for her gas.

She said she ran out the door to thank him, but he was already in his truck and didn't even look back.

The woman said his kindness brought her to tears, so she took to social media to try and find out who he was to thank him.

The Sheriff's Office send out the following post to Facebook:

This one will warm your hearts

After some brief investigating.. we tracked down our deputy who this message is about. He was reluctant to admit he was the deputy from this incident, so we will allow him to stay anonymous.

He said "She just seemed like she needed some help. It was the right thing to do."

We are proud to work alongside men and women like this deputy.

The woman said in her post that the deputy had blessed her family and she planned to pay it forward with the $10 she was going to spend on gas money.
